Residence in Malta


Launched in August 2015, the Malta Individual Investor Programme (“MRVP”) offers reputable third country nationals and their registered dependants the opportunity to acquire indefinite residential status in Malta. Successful applicants will therefore have the opportunity to reside and settle in Malta in addition to the luxury of travelling within the Schengen Area without the requirement of a visa.

Third country nationals include all persons who are not citizens of the European Union, the European Economic Area or Switzerland. For the purposes of the MRVP, eligible dependants include spouses, children under the age of 18, unmarried children aged between 18 -26 who are still financially dependent on the main applicant, parents and grandparents.
